The TOSSA ashtrays can be described as a cube version of the COPENHAGHE one: simple, stackable, made in melamine... as some point they could also be the result of a mix between that and the famous Bruno Munari ashtray for Danese (I will also share its picture).
They are also a rare find... I just saw a picture of them mailed to me by Ricard himself. And by the way, they were also made in moss/olive green.
To me it's funny how the two last ashtrays he designed for Flamagás are a step back to his first and most succesful design: both of them endlessly stackable, both of them just melamine items... or maybe I just think too much about these silly things :)
By the way, they're called after Tossa de Mar, a holiday resort in the Costa Brava, in Catalonia. As I told you Ricard named three of is ashtrays after three Spanish towns: Barcelona (where he was born), Mallorca and Tossa - my guess is he did so for sentimental reassons...
